MY MERCY BOX is a series of 10-minute adventures for children; a glimpse into life on a Mercy Ship, and the wonder of living in Africa . It’s like nothing you or your kids have ever seen before!

This inspirational little girl and her toy dog Captain Sabertooth take us on light-hearted yet inspiring journeys aboard Mercy Ships in Benin. Fride has all kinds of adventures on and off the ship; meeting new friends and discovering amazing things about life in West Africa.

Fride’s curious questions and typically-8-year-old comments make the series fun for all the family.
